Crime Spree Leads to Several Criminal Charges for Young Offenders

Airdrie, Alberta– On March 24, 2015, at 0324 a.m., Airdrie City RCMP responded to a glass break alarm at S&S Liquor store located in Airdrie, Alberta. Members arrived on scene and observed a 1999 Toyota Tercel running in front of the liquor store with two males inside the vehicle. When members attempted a traffic stop, the suspect vehicle fled from the scene. It was also noted the license plate had been reported stolen the previous day. While fleeing through the parking lot, the suspect vehicle hit the front of an RCMP member’s marked police vehicle. Members pursued the vehicle to the Highway 27 entrance to Olds, Alberta, where Didsbury and Olds RCMP members assisted. The vehicle did not stop for police and the pursuit was terminated without any suspect arrested. The suspect vehicle was later found abandoned in Olds, Alberta. The earlier collision did not result in any injuries and minimal damage was sustained to the police vehicle.

On March 27, 2015, Airdrie RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, Airdrie RCMP General Investigative Section, Airdrie City and Airdrie Rural RCMP located the two youth suspect males involved in the above mentioned occurrence at the Crossfield Country Inn in Crossfield, Alberta. RCMP members observed the two youth males exiting a stolen vehicle from Didsbury, a 2005 Chrysler 300, who then entered the hotel. The two were arrested shortly after without incident for outstanding warrants out of Airdrie, as well as possession of stolen property.

Between the reported incident dates of March 24, 2015, and March 27, 2015, the same youth males have been charged with numerous crimes stemming from multiple jurisdictions in Southern Alberta including Airdrie, Calgary, Red Deer, Olds and Didsbury.
